"Works great for me..."
Version: TechTool Pro 7.0.2
I've been using this product since version 4 and version 7.0.2 is the best so far. It works flawlessly on all four of my hard drives and I run it at 2-3 times a month. I have a Mac Pro 2009 version 4,1 with three internals and one external drive and I'm running Mavericks 10.9.2 (beta). Though I have used Disk Warrior with good success, I prefer the integration and full-featured set of Tech tool Pro.
The task of 'Defragmentation' takes awhile so be sure to set the energy savings in your System Preferences to 'Never' to make sure your Mac won't go into sleep and stop the Tech Tool processes'.
The key to successful operation of this program is to first and foremost make a backup of your existing drive! Next, run the 'Rebuild Directory' which will dismount the drive that it's repairing, so give it time. Follow with 'File Optimization' and then 'Defragmentation" and finally, 'Repair Disk Permissions'. if your drive has been neglected for a long time, these procedures can take a good part of the day.
